Not only are the characters in The Last Days of Disco embarrassingly earnest about their love for spectacular nightclubs and thumping dance music, but they're also completely transparent about their desires, even when they think they're being clever.

If it had been Stillman's swan song, a director could hardly hope to be prouder of such a strong exit.

Stillman skips the snark in favor of a sincere appreciation of his slightly lost characters.

Stilillman pulls off a unique balancing act of conveying the specificities of the cultural milieu but also maintaining a sense of universality that keeps the film from being solely about its time and place
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

The focus of The Last Days of Disco is a psychologically authentic and painfully parasitic female relationship.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4

The movie is only partially successful in conveying the passion, the erotic heat, the decadence that characterized discos as the new temples.

Mr. Stillman more or less saves the movie with Josh, a sweet, muddled guy who deserves better friends than he has in this movie.

The performances by the entire ensemble are delightful, with Beckinsale and Keeslar particularly impressive. Of course, it helps that they get most of the sharpest lines.
